Calling all Chess Players
Tuesday, September 24, 2019 8:20 AM

If your student in 1st through 5th grades is interested in learning or playing chess, Burroughs Chess Club will be meeting again this year on Fridays from 3:35 to 4:40pm starting October 25 in the Burroughs Media Center. Please sign up your student(s) by using this form no later than October 20.
Chess Club is an all-volunteer activity and there is no cost to participate. However, volunteers are needed each week to make Chess Club work, from checking kids in, to helping to keep our roughly 50 players focused, and generally being encouraging and supportive. 
There is no requirement that students or volunteers know how to play chess, just a genuine interest in learning and playing, or in supporting your student's interest. Chess Club will meet on Fridays through March 20 when school is in session. The club even fields a team for one or more of the school district's Check It Out Chess Tournaments, the first of which will be held on December 7 at Burroughs.
For more info, please email coach Brian Elliott
